Trademark Practice

Law 211P



Writing Experience (WE)



This course is designed to introduce students to the practical skills necessary to help clients identify, keep and use trademarks. In this seminar, we will explore trademark law through practical exercises and writing assignments. We will work on a client matter throughout the semester. Our client will require a search and opinion letter on the availability of a trademark for use in commerce and registration at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). We will have the opportunity to review a commercial search report provided by a leading trademark search company on our client's proposed trademark. Students will be introduced to the procedures and requirements for filing and prosecuting a federal trademark application.
